- 2005 days ago -
a marked increase of 4.3 degrees Fahrenheit (2.4 degrees Celsius) in average annual temperature since 1958 - that is, three times faster than the average temperature rise around the globe.

This has happened before and will happen again long after you and I are gone. There are many factors that contribute to climate change. There is of course overpopulation; fossil fuels used for cooking and unregulated emissions from factories and transportation in China, India, SE Asia and Africa. There is the destruction of the rainforests, the depletion of coral reefs and the acidification of the oceans. Let us not forget all the microscopic plastic showing up in our water supplies such as the Great Lakes et al. There is the huge damage that is being done in the name of progress via fracking and bitumen shale drilling. Then of course there is the thing that no one wants to mention - the divisive and destructive HAARP Program that primarily is used to alter the ionosphere and is probably a direct cause in altering many seismic fault beds, allegedly of course. All of these things contribute to climate change. Were the Antarctic shelf to alter and drop huge layers of ice into open water and if that cliff in the Azores were to drop into the Atlantic then we would really experience a true catastrophe; most of it of our own design.

Maybe someone ought to invite the Koch brothers for a visit there; they can go with the Dr. Muller who did research for one of them, and became a climate change believer, in the process.

We call it global warming but it is only global change and we help it along. Too bad we worry more about out new cars than our old planet.
